The relationships between subjective outcome evaluation and objective subjective evaluation measures were examined in this chapter. In a positive youth development program (Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. Project), 1,083high school students responded to objective outcome measures, including the Chinese Positive Youth Development Scale (CPYDS) and measures of thriving and life satisfaction at posttest. The respondents also responded to the Chinese Subjective Outcome Scale (CSOS) at posttest. Results showed that different measures derived from the CSOS (lessons, subject, sharing and benefits) had significant relationships with different measures of the CPYDS, thriving and life satisfaction. The different dimensions of the CSOS scores also predicted different objective outcome measures. The present findings provide additional evidence supporting the linkages between objective outcome and subjective outcome measures.
